In 2007 on my trip to Paris I had to visit the new Louis Vuitton store on the Champs-Elysées. It was amazing. I was quite tempted to make a purchase, but I decided that I did not need another Louis Vuitton.
However, after 8 years I am still using the bag. That cannot be said for many bags that I have purchased over the years and then given away.
Out of all of the bags that I own the Louis Vuitton Speedy 30 can hold the most items and still not feel heavy. This is very important to me as I carry a lot in my bags as my chiropractor can attest to. It is also a bag that I can use all year round. I am paranoid about getting rain, salt or snow on my bags. I do not regret the purchase now. Would I spend that much money on a bag again...probably not unless I won the lottery.
